Blue Cut Fault

Type of Faulting: left-lateral strike-slip
Length: at least 30 km
Most Recent Surface Rupture: Quaternary
Other Notes: The Blue Cut fault is likely much longer than shown on the map, but much of that length (toward the east of the trace on the map) is probably Pre-Quaternary in age, and is consequently difficult to trace beneath the Quaternary desert alluvium
